Vision Therapy & Convergence Insufficiency

Convergence insufficiency is a common condition that causes trouble focusing on an object close to you. Insufficiency means your eyes are not working as well to focus and comprehend books, phones, tablets, computers, and any time that is close to you. Convergence insufficiency can occur in both children and adults and causes trouble focusing on homework, reading, and computer work. Vision therapy is useful for the treatment of convergence insufficiency and can increase a child's ability to converge the eyes, resulting in more comfortable and efficient vision.

Frequently Asked Questions About Vision Therapy

Is Vision Therapy for Children?

Vision therapy can be very beneficial for children who have learning difficulty, poor reading skills, trouble with hand-eye coordination, a lazy eye, and more. Some learning difficulties may stem from vision problems like convergence insufficiency and not being able to focus on an object close to them, like a book or tablet.

Does Vision Therapy Work?

Results can differ for every patient, but vision therapy has been proven to help with hand-eye coordination, improve focus and reading skills, alleviate eye strain and headaches, and more. Studies have shown that vision therapy and exercises may be helpful for a condition called convergence insufficiency which occurs when the eyes don’t work together or when a person has difficulty focusing on an object.

Do I Need Vision Therapy?

If you think your vision is good, but you still experience vision problems like trouble reading right in front of you, lack of depth perception, or poor hand-eye coordination, vision therapy can be beneficial. Vision therapy can also help those individuals who lack the necessary visual skills for reading, writing, and learning.
